SpaceX

  1. SpaceX Is Launching Robonaut’s Legs and More Supplies to the ISS Today Starting at 2:15PM ET

    After 3 days in orbit, Robonaut's legs will rise again.

    Robonaut's transformation to Doctor Octonaut was delayed on Monday when a helium leak forced SpaceX to scrub their ISS cargo launch. Fortunately, they're going to get another shot today, and you can watch the live coverage from NASA and SpaceX starting at 2:15PM ET. The launch is scheduled for 3:25PM ET.

  2. NASA Will Send Robonaut’s Doc Ock Legs to the ISS Today With SpaceX, and You Can Watch With Us

    Let's build a robot Doctor Octopus and put him in charge of a space station. What could go wrong?

    NASA's Robonaut 2 has been patiently awaiting the arrival of his robotic Doc Ock legs as he sits completely immobile on a support post. Today, his lower half is launching to the ISS aboard the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft at 4:58PM ET, and then he'll be able to move freely about the space station and free up human astronauts for more complex tasks.

  3. SpaceX to Make 3rd Attempt to Launch a Satellite into Orbit Today with Their Newest Falcon 9 Rocket

    Third time's the charm?

    Last week, we watched SpaceX try to launch their first satellite into geostationary orbit, and it was disappointing when the launch was called off due to technical concerns. They failed again in their second attempt on Thanksgiving, so we'll have the live stream again today at 5:25PM EST to see if their third attempt is successful.

  4. Watch the Upgraded SpaceX Falcon 9 Maiden Voyage Live Tonight [Updated]

    We'd be really excited that we might some day get to go to space, but space is terrifying.

    SpaceX, the first commercial spaceflight company to visit the International Space Station, is entering new territory tonight as it uses its Falcon 9 rocket to transport its first satellite into geostationary orbit. This will mark the maiden voyage of an upgraded Flacon 9 with engines that are about 50% more powerful than before.

  5. Cygnus Successfully Docks With ISS, And A SpaceX Falcon 9 Blasts Off

    THE FUTURE IS NOW.

    It's a space-a-licious day! After a few failed attempts, Orbital Science's unmanned cargo craft Cygnus has successfully docked with the International Space Station (hooray!). Not wanting to be left out of the spotlight, SpaceX has also launched their next-gen rocket Falcon 9. The future is now!

  6. Check Out Another Successful Rocket Test From SpaceX Because Rockets Are Awesome [Video]

    This puts my 6th grade soda bottle experiment to shame.

    On August 13th, SpaceX performed, filmed, and uploaded another test of their Falcon 9 test rig (which they call the Grasshopper). This time the rocket flew to a 250m altitude with a 100m lateral maneuver before returning to the center of the pad. And oh. Man. You guys, it's SO COOL. I'm going to watch it eight more times.

  7. Great Work, Internet! We’re Getting a Tesla Statue That’s Also a Time Capsule and Wi-Fi Hotspot

    And what do you do with a statue of Nikola Tesla that's also a Wi-Fi hotspot and a time capsule? Send it to Mars, of course.

    In spite of being dead, Nikola Tesla is having a pretty good year. His New York lab was just purchased by a group of admirers looking to turn it into a museum, he could be getting his own cartoon, and now there will be a statue built in his honor in Silicon Valley. And not just any statue -- this one will double as a Wi-Fi hotspot, triple as a time capsule, and it could even be going to Mars in 2043.

  8. SpaceX’s Latest Grasshopper Test Flight Shatters Its Own Record, Hovers in the Air to Johnny Cash

    SpaceX's Grasshopper is a great example of a simple idea with awesome execution. The Vertical Takeoff Vertical Landing (VTVL) craft goes up, and it goes down. That's about all it does, but when you consider the fact that it goes up over 800 feet in the air, hangs out for a little while, and then gently sets itself back down on the landing pad like nothing ever happened...well, we're pretty impressed, anyway.

  9. After Some Trouble, SpaceX Dragon Capsule Docks Successfully With ISS

    Just minutes after its Friday morning launch, the SpaceX Dragon craft ran into some trouble. Shortly after separation from the Falcon 9 rocket, three out of four of the Dragon's thruster pods failed. Engineers on the ground worked quickly to fix the situation, and this morning the Dragon capsule is safely docked with the International Space Station. So what went wrong?

  10. Watch SpaceX’s Dragon Launch Live Stream Right Here

    Tomorrow's looking like a perfect day for a rocket launch in Cape Canaveral, Florida. SpaceX's second NASA-commissioned flight to the International Space Station is scheduled to take off in the morning. The mission will deliver a Dragon spacecraft with 1,200 lbs of supplies to the ISS, and will return to Earth loaded up with 2,300 lbs of things taken from the space station. We're looking forward to seeing the launch, and you can watch it right here.
